Many of us sewing enthusiasts dream of one day being able to actually do this for a living…am I right? I didn’t realize that sewing and creating brought me so much joy until a few years ago. Now I wonder how I ever did without it. I wonder what I did with my free time with no project waiting for me in the other room.
This past week, I visited with a local store owner in the San Antonio area. It’s a new quilt shop in Boerne, TX, called Sew It Fabulous. The owner is ridiculously awesome! She is allowing me the opportunity to teach a beginning quilting class on August 2.
And this is a portion of her shop’s newsletter. I’m so excited to do this, even if it turns out to be a one time thing. I hope that I can help other people to become excited about sewing–because I know how frustrated those first stitches can make a person. I remember when I first started using my little rinky dink Singer and how all of my seams would be off and unfinished, and I was still so proud of myself for what I had made.
Last week, I also prepared a step-by-step tutorial of how to do the wall-hanging applique project that I had posted about (spent hours on it!), only to find that when I went to upload it that this host does not allow you to upload PDF. GRRRRR. I will find another way to post the tutorial, because it really is a great project-even for beginners. So I guess this post is mostly just an update that I WILL post the tut…eventually! More to come soon!
